Argentina: number of femicides 2019-2020, by month

The number of women murdered on account of their gender in Argentina reached 162 from January to May 2020. January and April were the deadliest months for women in this South American country, as 34 and 30 victims of femicide were registered in each month, respectively. When comparing figures from the previous year, from January to April 2020 more victims of femicide were recorded than the number of victims during the same months in 2019.

It should be noted that as of March 20, 2020 the government of Argentina imposed a nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. During lockdowns there has been a growth in domestic violence and sexual abuse reports in Latin America, where Argentina has reported a 70 percent increase in phone calls to the family violence helpline in April of that year.
